口语:周董吃霸王餐?霸王餐怎么说?

微博热搜榜周董又上榜了,这次竟然是吃霸王餐!

去年周杰伦在嘉善西塘拍摄MV时下榻一家宾馆,离去时却没有交纳相应费用。日前,宾馆将两人所属经纪公司告上法庭,索取食宿费9万8千元。被告代理律师称:酒店提前泄露周杰伦行踪,导致很多人围观,拍摄周期延长、成本增加,所以才拖着酒店的钱。

其实,生活中有不少商家为了推广,也有请大家吃霸王餐的活动,那么,今天我们就一起来聊一聊霸王餐怎么说吧~~

初级“霸王餐”表达:
就是Free meal或者Free Lunch


我们最常听得一句话,“世上没有免费的午餐”,就是从美式英语谚语里翻译过来的。
原文是‘There's no such thing as a free lunch’ 也可以被写成'There ain't no such thing as a free lunch' ,后面的这个表达更贴近美式英语。

Free Lunch的典故
The “free lunch” referred to in the acronym relates back to the once-common tradition of saloons in the United States providing a "free" lunch to patrons who had purchased at least one drink. All the foods on offer were high in salt (e.g. ham, cheese and salted crackers) so those who ate them ended up buying a lot of beer.
这是美国人在19世纪的时候有些小酒馆提供免费的午餐,但是前提是你必须至少买一杯酒,它会提供很咸的食物,所以你会买更多的酒和饮料。钱都算在酒里了。

On the other hand, indicates an acknowledgment that in reality a person or a society cannot get "something for nothing". Even if something appears to be free, there is always a cost to the person or to society as a whole even though that cost may be hidden or distributed. For example, as Heinlein has one of his characters point out, a bar offering a free lunch will likely charge more for its drinks.
另一方面,这种世上没有免费午餐的说法,也映射了在现实中,一个人或者是一个社会,不可能不付出就有回报。那些看上去面免费的东西,最终你都要付出代价的。就比如这些提供免费午餐的酒馆,其实他们收了你更多的钱。

人人都爱霸王餐就可以是 We love free lunch!


高级“霸王餐”表达:
Dine and dash
A dine and dash (also referred to as "a walkout", "dine and ditch",  "chew and screw" or "beating the check") is a form of theft by fraud, in which a patron orders and consumes food from a restaurant or similar establishment with no intent to pay, then leaves without paying.
就是对那些吃饭没打算付钱的就可以用这个短语来表达了,重点是,去点餐,但是开始就没打算付帐。

dash是指赶紧离开,ditch非正式语中可表示逃学等;screw在俚语中是占便宜的意思。
